Hitman 3 is getting a complete makeover with its name as it finally changes to a new one later this month.
Hitman 3 turns into one.
Now there is going to be a new name. Hitman World of Assassination Instead of just Hitman 3. This will include access to Hitman 1 and Hitman 2 through the existing Access Pass system. Players who already own Hitman 3 will get a free upgrade to Hitman World of Assassination on all platforms.
Instead of having three Hitman titles in one store, there will be only one title left and that is Hitman World of Assassination. No need to go through three more topics as they will all be compiled in one.
No more confusion over which edition to buy, which content to keep, how to redeem legacy packs or import locations, and more. It will only be in this new name.
Two new options to look out for in the store
Hitman World of Assassination will have two versions. Check them out below:
HITMAN – WORLD OF KILL (About $70 USD or local equivalent)
Includes: HITMAN 3, plus H1 GOTY Access Pass and H2 Standard Access Pass.
HITMAN – World of Assassination Deluxe Pack (About $30 USD or local equivalent)
Contains: H3 Deluxe Pack, H3 Seven Deadly Sons Collection and H2 Expansion Access Pass.
Flexible for all players
IOI offers easy ways to complete the entire set for Hitman World of Assassination content. Players will be able to get all missing DLC from their libraries with one function. Check the options:
Complete the steam set.
On Steam, we’re going to implement ‘Complete Set’ functionality for the three DLC packs included. HITMAN World of Ascension Deluxe Pack (H3 Deluxe Pack, H3 Collection of Seven Deadly Sins And H2 Extended Access Pass). This will mean that you only pay an equal split for any content you don’t own. For example, if you have 2 DLCs, you’ll only pay $10 for the remaining DLC, instead of paying full price for the entire deluxe pack.
On other platforms, we’ve included each individual DLC from the new. WoA Deluxe Pack (H3 Deluxe Pack, H3 Collection of Seven Deadly Sins And H2 Extended Access Pass) on the IN-GAME STORE, again with an even price split ($10 USD each). If you own some (but not all) of this content, you’ll be able to buy whatever you’re missing – new and at a lower price.
One important detail we want to be clear about amid these changes is that we are removing the standalone HITMAN 1 and HITMAN 2 products from sale on all platforms. If you already own these games, you’ll still be able to access them just like you do today. Of course, the majority of content from these games remains playable through HITMAN World of Assassination, along with all the improvements that were introduced with HITMAN 3.
This will definitely bring clarity and peace of mind to the players as it will finally eliminate this complicated way of purchasing by IOI. It will all be one title and all content can be purchased and loaded easily with one button. Even a discount if they already own some DLCs.
This new change can only mean one thing: the developers are ready to “rest” the trilogy and move on to their next project, a new James Bond game.
When will Hitman World of Assassination start?
Hitman World of Assassination launches on January 26, 2023 for PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X/S.
